Not sure I would have taken this for longer than a few days, but I guess your doctor was watching you, hopefully?
Special warnings about Pred Forte
You must stay in close touch with your doctor while using Pred Forte, for the following reasons:
If you use Pred Forte eyedrops extensively and/or for an extended period of time, you may be at increased risk for cataracts or vision problems. Prolonged use also increases the risk of another infection.
If you have had cataract surgery, Pred Forte can delay healing.
Some eye diseases, together with long-term use of steroids, can cause thinning of the cornea; you may be at increased risk for perforation of the eyeball.
If you have a persistent ulceration of the cornea of your eye while using Pred Forte eyedrops, the problem may be a secondary fungus infection which Pred Forte cannot cure. An eye doctor should evaluate this possibility.
If you use Pred Forte eyedrops for 10 days or longer, an eye doctor should check your intraocular pressure (pressure inside the eyeball) frequently, since prolonged use of steroids may increase this pressure. If you already have glaucoma, use Pred Forte cautiously. If increased pressure is allowed to continue, it may cause loss of vision. :shock: :shock: :shock:
